AI ethics and its impact on knowledge management
Springer
October 06, 2020
The focus of knowledge management (KM) is to enable people and organizations to collaborate, share, create and use knowledge. Understanding this KM is leveraged to improve performance, increase innovation and grow the knowledge base of both people and the organization. Knowledge must be Dynamic, Accurate and Personal to be applied in the decision-making process. Artificial Intelligence (AI) through machine learning allows machines to acquire, process and use knowledge to perform tasks and to unlock knowledge that can be delivered to people to improve the decision-making process.

AI and its Effect on Personal Data Protection
The Knowledge Management Depot
September 14, 2020
AI can increasingly link different datasets and match different types of information with profound consequences. Data held separately and considered Non-PII (Personal Identifiable Information stripped of personal identifiers), with the application of AI can become Personal Identifiable Information (PII). This occurs when AI in the form of machine learning algorithms can correlate non-personal data with other data and matched to specific individuals, becoming personal data. AI through algorithmic correlation will weaken the distinction between personal data and other data. Non-personal data can increasingly be used to identify individuals or infer sensitive information about them, beyond what was originally and knowingly disclosed (Reference: OECD (2019). Artificial Intelligence in Society, OECD Publishing, Paris).

Delivering Knowledge-as-a-Service - Empowering your people with intelligent access to knowledge!

Location: Open    Date Available: November 02nd, 2019    Fees: negotiable

Submission Date: November 02nd, 2019    Service Type: Service Offered

Delivering Knowledge as a Service – KaaS, is not the same as Software as a Service (SaaS) although both share the foundational aspect of being cloud based. KaaS is about delivering the right knowledge to the right person in the right context at the right time via desktop, laptop or any mobile device. Catchy, yes but practical! KaaS delivery of knowledge consists of both explicit and tacit knowledge. It allows for access to tangible knowledge such as how-to’s, lessons learned, best practices, proven workflows, case studies, procedural manuals, plans, and templates as well as to the people who are experts about that knowledge. KaaS brings together KM and AI for intelligent delivery and access to knowledge.

This program will provide the participants with the understanding of KaaS as well as the tools and techniques to launch KaaS at their organization.
